It looks like we a new selfie king. At the time of writing, the ASUS ZenFone 6 posted the highest score among front cameras on DxOMark.
This bodes well for the smartphone, considering it uses the same hardware for both the front and the back cameras. For those not familiar, the ZenFone 6 uses a motorized flip camera module that, well, flips from the back to face the front. The reason for this was to eliminate the notch and maximize screen real estate.
The ZenFone 6 sits at the top of the DxOMark’s selfie camera list with an average score of 98 points. The phone got 101 on photo and 93 on video, and was praised for its good detail, efficient noise reduction, good colors and skin tones, and accurate auto focus.
Rounding DxOMark’s top five selfie smartphones are the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G with 97 points at second, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ with 96 at third, and the Google Pixel 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 at fourth and fifth with 92 points apiece.
The ASUS ZenFone 6 has a 6.4-inch full HD+ IPS panel with Gorilla Glass 6 protection and HDR10 support, and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. It comes in three configurations — 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB. There’s also a large 5000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4 support.
The handset has a 48MP + 13MP camera module that flips from the back to the front.
